The works of the Emperor Julian by Julian( Book )

78 editions published between 1913 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 1,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julian's surviving literary-political works, all in Greek (lost are his Commentaries on his western campaigns) are given in the L.C.L. in three volumes: the eight Oragions (1-5 in Vol. I, 6-8 in Vol. II) include two in praise of Constantius, one praising Constantius's wife Eusebia, and two theosophical 'hymns' (in prose) or declamation, of interest for studies in neo-Platonism, Mithraism, and the cult of the 'Magna Mater' in the Roman world; Misopogon, 'Beard-hater', in Vol. II, assails the morals of people in Antioch; the 'Letters' (more than eighty, Vol. III) include edicts or rescripts, mostly about Christians, encyclical or pastoral letters to priests, and private letters. Lastly in Vol. III are the fragments (nearly all from book I) of the work (in three books) Against the Galilaeans (the Christians), written mainly to show that evidence for the idea of Christianity is lacking in the Old Testament
Philostratus and Eunapius : the lives of the sophists by Philostratus( Book )

104 editions published between 1921 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 1,343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

PHILOSTRATUS AND EUNAPIUS. (a) Of the distinguished Lemnian family of Philostrati, Flavius Philostratus, 'the Athenian', was a Greek sophist (professor), c. A.D. 170-205, who studied at Athens and later lived in Rome. He was author of the admirable Life of Apollonius of Tyana (Loeb Nos. 16 and 17) and Lives of the Sophists (which are really impressions of investigators alert but less fond of scientific method and discovery than of stylish presentation or things known), one part concerning some older, the other some later 'provessors'. Other extant works of this Philostratus are Letters and Gymnasticus, but the Heroicus or Heroica is apparently by another Philostratus, and the Eikones (Imagines, skilful descriptions of pictures, Loeb No. 256) were probably by two Philostrati, on being the son of Nervianus and born c. A.D. 190, the other his grandson who wrote c. AD. 300. (b) The Greek Sophist and historian Eunapius was born at Sardis in A.D. 347, but went to Athens to study and lived much of his life there teaching rhetoric and possibly medicine. He was initiated into the 'mysteries' and was hostile to Christians. Lost is his historical work (covering the years A.D. 270-404) but for excerpts and the use of it made by Zosimmus, but we have his Lives of Philosophers and Sophists mainly contemporary whth himself. Eunapius is our only source of our knowledge of Neo-Platonism in the latter part of the fourth century A.D
